The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) opened its first corridor between Shahdara and Tis Hazari in December 2002. Subsequently, the first phase of construction worth 65 kilometres of Metro lines was finished two years and nine months ahead of schedule in 2005. Since then the DMRC has completed the construction of another 125 kilometres of Metro corridors under the second phase in just four and a half years.
Presently, the DMRC network consists of about 208 Km with 150 stations along with six more stations of the Airport Express Link. The network has now crossed the boundaries of Delhi to reach Noida and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh, and Gurgaon and Faridabad in Haryana. The Airport Express link between the Indira Gandhi International Airport and New Delhi has propelled Delhi to the league of global cities which have high speed rail connectivity between the city and the airport.
The DMRC has 216 train sets of four, six and eight coaches. More than a hundred trains of six coach configuration and over 60 trains of eight coach configuration are currently operational.
